Junior point guard Trey Burke (6-0) of Columbus Northland re-opened up his
recruitment yesterday after committing to Penn State in the fall. Here
is a look at his new list of suitors.
According to Burke’s father, Benji who is also his AAU coach for All-Ohio Red, the younger Burke has been getting a lot of attention lately.
“First, this was a tough decision to make,” Burke noted. “It was hard for me, because we kind of knew he would play right away at Penn State. We want to give Trey a chance to go through the whole recruiting process.”
Burke’s new list of schools is admirable, and his father says one school is particularly coming on hard.
“Georgia Tech is starting to come on hard,” Burke stated. “They really like him. They were at our games last year at the Peach Jam.”
Burke’s team finished runner-up at the Peach Jam, which is held in South Carolina.
Burke’s father mentioned West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Arizona, Baylor, Cincinnati, Butler, Seton Hall, USC, Cleveland State, and Toledo as the schools recruiting his son.
Burke’s top five as this point are Georgia Tech, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Butler, and Baylor.
At this point, only one of his top five (Butler) has offered but that is likely to change real soon.
“WVU, Georgia Tech, and Cincinnati are close to offering,” Burke said. “They all got his transcripts.”
As for Penn State, they seem like a long-shot at this point, but Burke’s family still holds them in high regards.
“My wife and I would love for him to go to Penn State, but we have to support him,” Burke relayed.
